Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A passerby looks at a fa­tally in­jured log­ger­head sea tur­tle (Caretta caretta) on Karathonas Beach near Naf­plio, in the north­ern Pelo­pon­nese, on Satur­day. The tur­tle washed up on the beach ear­lier in the day with mul­ti­ple in­juries across its body, pos­si­bly from a boat pro­pel­lor, in one of sev­eral sim­i­lar in­ci­dents re­ported in the area over the past few weeks. Ear­lier this month, the Euro­pean Court of Jus­tice found Greece guilty of fail­ing to pro­tect the nest­ing grounds of this en­dan­gered species in Ky­paris­sia Bay, on the op­po­site coast of the Pelo­pon­nese penin­sula.
